As teachers at Aylesbury Vale Academy prepare to move into a new era with their brand new building at Berryfields in September they also welcomed the achievements of the pupils who left them this summer.

Headteacher Fiona Froment said: “We are really really pleased.

“One hundred per cent of students achieved three or more A-levels or their equivalent which includes BTEC, which is an improvement on last year when the figure was 92%.”

Twenty per cent of the grades were A* to B at A level or BTEC. BTEC is a coursework-based qualification in subjects like sport, IT and the performing arts.

Mrs Froment said: “Three years ago five students went to university, last year 32 were offered and took up places.

“We have an increasing number of students who feel sixth form is the right place for them, and also now we have an increasing number who feel going on to university is the right place for them.

“That is part of our job, to give them that belief and self esteem.”

Four students doing sports BTEC got triple distinction stars and one of them, Freya Spooks, has been selected for the England junior bowls team.

The most popular universities for pupils include Bucks New University, Portsmouth, Swansea, Sunderland and Loughborough.

The vast majority of pupils go straight into work and Mrs Froment confirmed most have jobs lined up or have already started.
